Reviews

Best midlands based open water swimming place. Love it. Well organised and staffed professionally. Plenty of lovely warm showers to use afterwards and a great little cafe that on site too. Book via Nowca/Actio. They've just had another new inflatable. Kids love paddle boarding here. Have camped here too with the kids. Great base for getting out in the car and seeing the sites of the Midlands or a spot of fishing on site of that's your thing.

5 star ratingAmazing first family camp trip! We booked Pillaton hall farm a few months back for our first family camping trip since buying a tent and all the gear to go with it. We booked an electrical hook up pitch. Lovely welcome on reception and all information given. There is a big shop in reception with food, drinks, toys etc. drove round to our pitch and set up camp. Toilet and shower block facilities very nice, modern, spacious and kept clean. Vending machines available in there, freezer for ice packs, wash up room also huge with a wide screen tv which you wash up. We had a take away from Dottie’s one night. Impressed with that too. Pizza was a bit pricey but tasty. Lots for the kids to do such as the new panning for gold area, zip lines, play parks, bouncing pillows. There is a lake you can swim in but this has to be booked and there is a charge which was a shame so we didn’t do that. The site whilst we were there was very quiet at night and early morning. Lovely male staff member who helped us whilst setting up our tent making sure it was in the correct spot. I would definitely recommend and visit again. Every camp site I look at booking I will always compare to the standards that there was here. Couldn’t fault it.

I went to Pillaton Hall Farm for a session on the outdoor swimming. What a fabulous experience. Friendly and helpful staff who took the time to explain the setup what to do, how to do it and what to do if you start to struggle. Amazing shower blocks to have a shower and get dressed in afterwards. Will go back!
